This week, I’m bringing you the “Top 5” from the lucky 13th floor of a hotel located in beautiful San Diego. I mention that only because on any typical weekend I would be writing from the suffocating heat of the Midwest and it’s just nice to remind myself of how happy I am to be able to walk outside without instantly sweating from every pore. But I digress…
In this week’s “Top 5” installment, we have more Comic-Con coverage than you can shake a stick at (Do people still use that idiom? More importantly, is it actually an idiom?), trailers for The Dark Knight Rises and The Amazing Spider-Man, the return of our video blog/podcast For Your Consideration, and an exclusive video interview with Captain America: The First Avenger‘s lovely star, Hayley Atwell. Hit the jump for brief recaps and links to each.
1. All of Our Comic-Con Coverage
If you aren’t able to attend San Diego Comic-Con for whatever reason, there are a couple of things I recommend you do: 1) Consider yourself lucky because the food here is outrageously overpriced and 2) Click here to check out all of our extensive coverage from the convention. Seriously, if you can’t find something in there that interests you, then you probably visited the site by mistake in the first place.
2. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES Teaser Trailer
Chances are, you’ve already watched the teaser trailer for Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. However, whenever it comes to Nolan’s Batman, I refuse to take any chances of someone missing the trailer on account of my own assumptions. Click here to check out the trailer and, in case you missed it, I also recommend clicking here to watch it remixed with footage from the excellent Batman: The Animated Series.
3. First Trailer for THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN
The debut trailer from director Marc Webb’s The Amazing Spider-Man sparked quite a debate amongst readers in our comments section this week. Some were impressed by the footage while others found it a little too gloomy/”emo.” Regardless of your flavor, we’d love to hear your thoughts on the cut. If you’ve yet to check it out and/or comment on it, click here to take care of both.
4. FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION Podcast: HARRY POTTER, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES and Comic-Con
In this installment of the video blog/podcast For Your Consideration, Steve and co. discuss Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2, the necessity (or lack thereof) of The Dark Knight Rises teaser trailer, Comic-Con, and more. Click here to watch and revel in the greatness of Steve’s gotee.
5. Exclusive: Hayley Atwell Video Interview CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER
With Paramount’s Captain America: The First Avenger hitting theaters this weekend, Steve had the opportunity to talk about the film with star Hayley Atwell. As well-spoken as she is beautiful, this is one video interview you do not want to miss. Click here to watch.
